PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mavis Discount Tire, located at 868 Dalton Ave, was robbed earlier Thursday evening. 
The robber entered the building, grabbed the drawer that contained approximately $350 to $400, and left, store manager Daniel Pagan said. 
There were two customers and four employees, including Pagan, in the store at the time of the robbery. No one was hurt. 
"The guys were working, you know, a normal day. I had two customers here. I went to use the bathroom and by the time I came back the guy just came, grabbed the drawer, and left," Pagan said. 
A witness informed Pagan that the robber was approximately 5-foot to 5-and-a-half-feet tall and was wearing a black hoodie that he used to cover his face. 
The incident was quick and the police officers also arrived very quickly, Pagan said. 
"[The officers] did a hell of a job. I will tell you that much. They were here faster than I have ever seen them come," Pagan said.
"I am just glad that we are safe and everybody was safe and nobody was hurt. That’s all that matters to me right now.  
No further information was immediately available.
